As the New York Jets prepare for the start of training camp, ESPN has the latest update on wide receiver Robby Anderson’s potential suspension by the NFL as his case it’s still being reviewed.

New York Jets training camp is about to begin and as of right now, there is no definitive word on whether or not wide receiver Robby Anderson will get hit with a suspension by the NFL. Anderson, who was arrested twice so far this offseason, was able to clear his name as felonies from them have been officially dropped in the court of law.

Ideally, the Jets are hoping that a resolution happens sooner rather than later so everyone knows what will happen when the regular season starts. The league’s personal conduct policy can be tricky and confusing at times since any offense could result in a suspension of a random number of regular season games.

For someone of this situation regarding Anderson, it’s likely he’ll get hit with a one or two-game suspension to start the regular season. Despite going on record saying that he’s matured and learned from his off-the-field mistakes, a suspension would easily be a glaring reminder that he needs to stay focused on football and away from distractions.

In a news update by Rich Cimini of ESPN, here’s the latest on Anderson and the potential of getting hit with a suspension by the league:

Jets WR Robby Anderson will report to training camp tomorrow still facing the possibility of league discipline. His case still is being reviewed by the NFL under its personal-conduct policy, a league spokesman tells ESPN. He cleared his legal issues last month, when he pleaded no contest to misdemeanor reckless driving. All other charges from two arrests were dropped. Still, the league has the power to impose discipline — i.e. a suspension.

The fact that most charges were dropped should put Anderson in a better situation than had he still had them attached to his name. Hopefully, the league comes down with a decision either way so everyone can ultimately find out and move on from the matter.

Anderson is coming off a breakout season with the Jets that saw him total 941 receiving yards, 63 receptions, and seven touchdowns. Not only did Anderson lead the Jets wide receiver corps in many categories but was one of the few brights spots in another losing season. If Anderson is able to get through this incident without a suspension, it should hopefully motivate him to continue on what could potentially be a very successful career in the pros.
